The current core of the Utah Jazz has always been stellar defensively, but it’s the offense that’s been prone to extended periods of mediocrity. Such is the case with Utah in 2016-17. Gordon Hayward and company will look to turn things around on Saturday against the Houston Rockets.
- The UNDER is 6-1 in the Rockets’ last 7 home games.
- The Jazz are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Houston.
- The Jazz are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.
Utah is coming off an 85-77 home loss to the Chicago Bulls that saw them shoot just 38.5 percent from the field. The absence of point guard George Hill is depriving the team in that department. Hill, who sat out of his sixth straight game against the Bulls, is averaging 20.4 points on 54.1 percent shooting.
The Rockets are having the opposite problem. Houston put up 126 points in a win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday and scored 100 or more in 10 of the first 12 games. James Harden has already posted three triple-doubles – tied for best in the league with Russell Westbrook.
Houston is becoming a fantastic bet. The Rockets are 5-1 ATS in their last six affairs.
